Good-morrow, dear lady,
Wherever you are,
I come to greet you
From near and from far.
If you carefully study
The rules in this book,
You will surely make
A most famous cook.
To you each has given
The best in her store,
Cakes, puddings, and pies
You will find them galore.
And when preparing
Your food for the day,
Do not neglect this
Caution I pray:
Add a cupful of love,
And a spoonful of spice,
And lo! you have
A spread for a king in a trice.
Is Your Family Well Nourished ?
DO YOU KNOW FOOD VALUES?
A reasonable intelligence combined with a disposition to
exercise the same degree of judgment and care in the nutrition
of the body as is expended on other matters of no greater im-
portance pertaining to the individual, to the household or to
business interests, are all that is needed to bring about harmony
between every-day dietary habits and the nutritive require-
ments of the body. There is no occasion, unless one finds
pleasure and satisfaction in so doing, to resort to a limited die-
tary of nuts and fruits, to become an ardent disciple of vege-
rarianis.'n, to adopt a cereal diet, to abjure meats entirely or to
follow in an intensive fashion any particular dietary hobby.
FOOD CONTAINS THESE ELEMENTS:
1. Protein makes blood and muscle, and renews the body
2. Fats store heat and energy.
3. Carbohydrates create heat and energy.
4. Mineral matter forms bone, assists digestion, cleanses
(All foods contain water, some as much as 50 per cent. it
aids excretion, distributes heat over the body and dissolves
THE BODY REQUIRES DAILY:
1. Protein 160 to 300 units.
2. Fals 500 to 900 units three times as much as protein.
3. Carbohydrates 1000 to 1800 units twice as much as
4. Mineral matter and vegetable fiber for "bulk" and as
A well-balanced diet combines these elements in proper
Meals should not have too much of any one element.
WHAT THE ELEMENTS ARE:
1. Protein lean meat, white of eggs, cheese, fish, gluten
of grains, beans, lentils, nuts.
2. Fats butter, vegetables and animal oils, nut fats.
3. Carbohydrates sugars and starches in potatoes, rice,
milk and other vegetables and fruits.
4. Mineral matter salts and acids in fruits, vegetables and
This book is compiled with no attempt at literary effort,
and no form for writing the recipes has been observed.
The compiler preferred to publish each recipe as it was
Not every member of The Twentieth Century Club of
Berkeley has furnished a recipe, and not every one that has
been received has been used, as there were duplicates, and our
space is limited.
We urge subscribers to try the recipes in this book, some
may be new, many are old favorites; all have been tried.
Most families enjoy new dishes, and even though the head
of the house may make fun of a new dish, or of one that is not
common on your table, he usually eats it (if it is good).
Too many homemakers get in a rut in cookery; if we em-
ploy servants it is easier; if we do our own cooking it becomes
The following, copied from a popular magazine, may in-
fluence you to try many of the recipes in this book:
"How many of us cut out, from papers and magazines, re-
cipe after recipe, and file them away faithfully! 'Some day
I will try them,' are the words that go with them; but the
thought must go, too, for the day never comes; the paper clip-
pings turn yellow, and we have missed, perhaps, more than we
know; to get out the same pan, to take down the same bottle
of extract, to use the same number of eggs is always easier.
If we are in the habit of making chocolate frosting, chocolate
it remains. In spite of the fact that there are over twenty-five
good recipes for muffins, morning after morning we use but
the one. While it is change, remember, that the body wants, it
cannot always be, it need not always be, in the food itself.
Appearance, form, flavor here variety is always possible, and
only a little thought, the cost."
Our advertisers have made the publication of this book
possible. We urge the members of The Twentieth Century Club
of Berkeley, and their friends to give them their patronage and
thereby show their appreciation of the financial help of the

In making soups purchase the shin of beef, and use cold
water to draw out the flavoring and juices. The object is di-
rectly opposite from boiling. By using cold water and cooking
the meat at a low temperature, we get the flavoring and stimu-
lating parts of the meat, but we cannot make a meat soup nu-
tritious unless we add other materials. Clear and hot, it is
stimulating, but has no food-value.
A good rule to remember is to serve a clear soup at the
beginning of a heavy dinner, and to precede the "scrap" or
"pick up dinner" with a good cream soup.
One egg, beaten; season with salt and pepper; stir in enough
cracker crumbs to make stiff batter; work in about three tea-
spoons of marrow fat; make into balls. Boil in soup fifteen
minutes. Mrs. F. C.
Beat up 1 egg; add pinch of salt, flour enough to make stiff
dough; roll out in very thin sheet; dredge with flour to keep
from sticking. In about 1 hour roll up tightly, and for soup
noodles shave fine like vermicelli.
For noodles to be served as a separate dish, cut in about Vz
inch wide strips, stir in boiling salt water to cover, boil about
ten minutes; drain, serve on hot platter, cover with butter
browned and some bread crumbs browned in butter.
Put into the soup-kettle % cup flour and % cup butter, a
teaspoon salt, a little pepper and a pinch of sugar. Rub these
to a cream and add 1 quart of tomatoes pressed through a
colander. Stir this over the fire until it boils and let it boil up
well for a minute. Then add 1 quart of cold milk and stir con-
stantly until it boils again, when it is ready to serve. Mrs. C.
LIMA BEAN PUREE.
Soak 1 cup dried lima beans over night. In morning pick
beans out of water, cover with fresh water, cook slowly till
tender, keeping covered with water till tender; then let water
cook away. Add salt; mash beans slightly in pot, add 1 table-
spoon butter, little pepper and milk to make thickness desired.
VEGETABLE SOUP WITHOUT MEAT.
Scrape and slice three turnips and three carrots, peel three
onions and fry all with a little butter until a light yellow; add
a bunch of celery and three leeks cut in pieces; stir and fry all
the ingredients for six minutes; when fried add one clove of
garlic, two stalks of parsley, salt and pepper and a little grated
nutmeg; cover with three quarts of water and simmer for three
hours; strain and add vermicelli, Italian paste or rice.
Wash the peapods thoroughly, then take the strings from
the sides, just as you would beans. Cover with cold water and
a little salt. Boil for about half an hour for 1 pound of pods.
Then strain and add 1 cup of milk and a little thickening of
flour and cold water and boil for five minutes or until thick.
GREEN PEA SOUP.
Cook 1 quart green peas (fresh) in 1 quart water till ten-
der or use left over peas and water in which they are cooked.
Make white sauce of 2 tablespoons butter, 2 tablespoons flour,
1 teaspoon salt, Vi teaspoon pepper, 1 quart milk. Rub peas
through coarse strainer or mash them and add to white sauce.
CREAM OF CELERY.
Three cups tough ends of celery cut in small pieces and 3
cups water or enough water to cover celery; cook till tender.
Make white sauce of 3 tablespoons butter, 3 tablespoons flour, 1
teaspoon salt, % teaspoon white pepper, 3 cups milk. Add
cooked celery and liquid (unstrained) to white sauce and serve.
CREAM OF ONION SOUP.
Put 1 quart of stock and 4 sliced onions in a sauce pan and
bring slowly to boiling point. Simmer gently three-quarters of
an hour. Then press through fine sieve, return to fire, rub to-
gether 1 tablespoon butter and 2 tablespoons flour. Add gradu-
ally a little of the hot soup. When smooth turn it into the
kettle and stir until it reaches the boiling point, then add 1 gill
of cream or milk, a seasoning of salt and pepper, turn into a
tureen, add a tablespoon chopped parsley and serve. Mrs. E.
CREAM OF SPINACH SOUP.
This is the most palatable and sightly of the green soups.
Wash 1 quart of spinach, throw it into a dry kettle, add % cup
water, and shake and toss over the fire for five -minutes; cover
the kettle, and cook five minutes longer; drain, saving the water.
Chop the spinach very fine, press it through a sieve, return it
to the kettle with the water, add 1 tablespoon of grated onion,
1 quart of milk, 2 tablespoons flour rubbed with 2 tablespoons
butter, V<t teaspoon celery-salt and a dash of pepper; stir con-
stantly until the soup reaches the boiling point, strain again
through a sieve, turn at once into the soup-tureen, and serve
with puff balls.
Put 1 tablespoon butter and 4 tablespoons of water into
a saucepan; when boiling stir in hastily 4 tablespoons dry
flour. When you have a smooth dough stand it aside a moment
to cool, then beat into it the white of 1 egg. Drop this batter
from the tip of a teaspoon onto a greased paper in the bottom
of a baking pan; the dough should not be larger than a good-
sized pea. Bake in a quick oven until light and crisp, and they
are ready for use.
CREAM OF CELERY SOUP.
To 1 cup of well cooked celery rubbed through colander,
add 1 quart milk and when near boiling stir in 1 scant table-
spoon flour into which 2 tablespoons of butter has been rubbed,
and M teaspoon salt. Cook well in double cooker. Just before
serving allow % raw onion to remain in hot soup for 10
minutes. Remove onion and stir in 1 cup whipped cream and
serve at once. E. H.
CREAM CRAB SOUP.
Two quarts milk, 1 large crab picked fine, small onion and
little parsley chopped; dash of cayenne pepper. Put all of
these in the milk and let come to boiling point. Two table-
spoons flour and good-sized piece of butter mixed with flour;
soften with some of the milk and let all cook half an hour.
Just before serving add 2 well beaten eggs. M. D. B.
Slice a small onion and fry brown in a tablespoon butter
or drippings. Put in the joints of oxtail and let them brown
on all sides; then turn the contents of the frying-pan into the
soup-kettle, add a sliced carrot, some celery, parsley, 2 pepper-
corns, or a little cayenne, and salt; cover with cold water and
simmer slowly until the meat begins to fall from the bones.
A cup of strained tomato may be added if liked. Mrs. C. M. M.
One small can minced clams, 1 pint milk, 1 onion, 3 table-
spoons butter, 1 tablespoon flour, salt and pepper to taste. Cul
onion fine, and fry a light brown in the butter, then add 1
tablespoon flour. Add gradually, stirring constantly the
warmed milk. When smooth and creamy add the clams and
seasoning and let cook a few minutes. Place in double boiler
until ready to serve. H. "VY. M.

GOOD FISH RECIPE.
Get 2 salmon or halibut steaks % inch thick. Slice and fry
onion until clear; spread onion and chopped pimiento on one
steak; lay other steak on it for about 2 hours. Take off upper

While damp rub with salt. Arrange in roasting pan with small
slices of bacon on top and dash of cayenne pepper. Roast in
the closed pans in hot oven for 30 minutes and serve with
baked apples. E. W.
If the weather is cold wild duck is better if kept several
days. After dressing the duck in the usual way by plucking,
singeing, drawing, and washing, place it in a dripping pan in a
hot oven, letting it remain for 10 minutes without basting. Then
baste frequently with butter and water. If preferred well done,
let cook for 40 minutes. Place on a flat dish, season with salt
and pepper, pour over it the gravy and serve with currant
jelly. A whole onion peeled and cooked inside the duck gives
it a delicious flavor. S. D.
Quail should be drawn as soon as killed. Then they may
be hung in a cool place and will keep for three or four days.

ting down the back. Salt and pepper them, roll them in flour
and place in frying pan of hot lard or lard and butter. Brown
them well on both sides and serve hot. S. D.

or flatten the breast-bone. Place the chicken in a pan, bone
side down; dust lightly with pepper, baste all over with melted
butter, add V-2 cup of stock, and put in a very hot oven. After
about 15 minutes, baste again with melted butter, dust with
salt, and cook 30 minutes longer; if the oven is hot, % of an
hour will brown the chicken nicely. Dish, garnish with pars-
ley, and serve with plain cream sauce made in the roasting-pan.
YANKEE CHOP SUEY.
One chicken, 3 slices of bacon, 3 pork chops, 1 pint of string
beans (or 1 can), 1 pint of corn from the cob (or 1 can), % cup
of dried mushrooms (or 1 can). Boil chicken, pork and bacon
till tender, remove the bones and cut in small pieces. Add the
vegetables and boil slowly 1 hour. Season with 2 tablespoons
Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper and paprika to taste. Add
a little flour if too thin. Chop suey should be about the con-
sistency of chowder and served with boiled rice. Mrs. E. B. G.
CURRIED CHICKEN OR VEAL.
Cook and season the same as chicken fricasse. Fry a pint
or more of sliced onions light brown. Just before removing
from the fire thicken the gravy with flour and 1 tablespoon of
curry moistened with water. Then stir the meat and onions
together and it is ready for the table. It should be eaten with
boiled rice. Mrs. H. N. B.
CHICKEN EN CASSEROLE.
Boil chicken until tender and cut off of bones. 1 slice

minced onion and green pepper; use broth simmered into a
sauce. Fry chicken brown in oil. Mix all with boiled rice and
green peas. Bake % hour.
One fat hen, cut in small pieces and boil until tender; pick
meat off of bones. Butter a baking dish; put in layer of
chicken, then layer of French mushrooms, then layer of bread
crumbs with plenty of butter; salt and pepper. Do this until

of mushrooms until it shows above chicken. Bake % hour.
To one large chicken take one large can of mushrooms. S. E.
PHILADELPHIA DRESSING FOR ROAST FOWL.
Grate as much stale bread as required and put into a frying-
pan with a large lump of butter; about a tablespoon to a quart
of crumbs. Add salt, pepper and sage if liked, and stir over
the fire until the butter is thoroughly melted into the bread.
Remove from the fire and stir in a well beaten egg. If too dry
add a little hot water but do not make it soft. Boiled and
chopped chestnuts, sausage or oysters may be added.
Cut up chicken as for fricassee and stew in just enough
water to keep from burning; season each piece with salt and
pepper and lay in a large pudding or baking dish; beat 2 eggs
until light, add to 1 pint of milk; 1 quart of canned or grated
corn; season with pepper and salt, pour over chicken; cover
with a layer of fine bread crumbs; dot with butter and bake in
quick oven. A. L. B.
Boil 2 fat chickens until very tender, remove all the bones,
and place some of the liquor in a mold, filling it with the well
seasoned chicken. Put in a cold place until firm; turn out;
cut in slices. D.
Cut up chicken as for fricassee; boil till nearly done, then
add 1 cup of well washed rice, % can tomatoes and Spanish
pepper to taste. A. L. B.

TO ROAST MEAT WELL.
Meat must be wiped off with wet cloth, then salted, pep-
pered and dredged with flour; put into a hot oven, to sear the
outside and protect the juices. After about 10 minutes baste

Cheese and Chafing Dish
Fill the chafing-dish lamp before beginning to cook, as it
always delays cooking to have to refill during the operation. An
alcohol filler is a great convenience and removes the danger that
always attends filling the chafing-dish from a bottle. The hot-
water pan is used for keeping materials hot in case of a second
helping, although most people have better success with a Welsh
rarebit made over hot water. For raw-meat dishes, as beef pats
and the breasts of birds, use the blazer for first cooking. Un-
less you wish fine-powdered cheese, do not take the time to
grate it. Put it through the meat chopper, which will cut fine
very dry, hard cheese. The soft American cheese, though rather
unpalatable if eaten uncooked, has great possibilities when
mixed with other materials and heated. Frequently it is too
soft to be grated on an ordinary grater, when it must be
chopped fine or rasped. To keep it in summer, wrap it in
waxed paper, then in tissue paper, and put it in a tin box in a
cool place. If the house is damp, wipe the cheese all over with
pure grain alcohol and then wrap it up.
Mix a quarter pound of soft American cheese with 1 beaten
egg, add % teaspoon of salt, a dash of cayenne, and sufficient
stale' bread crumbs to make a stiff paste. Form in balls the size
of English walnuts, dip in beaten egg, roll in dry crumbs, and
fry in hot fat. Serve hot with lettuce or cress salad.
Add 2 tablespoons of melted butter to % pint of dry cottage
cheese; rub until smooth, add % teaspoon of salt, a saltspoon of
paprika, and a dash of black pepper. Form into balls the size
of English walnuts, roll in finely chopped nuts, and put aside
to cool. Serve as a cheese course with lettuce and crackers. Z.
In England and Switzerland this pudding forms the night
meal for the laboring classes. It is very nutritious and more
easily digested than the Welsh rarebit. Grate or chop % pound
of soft American cheese. Toast and butter 4 slices of bread;

ISABELLA GRAPE JAM.
Remove pulp from medium ripe Isabella grapes, put pulp
onto simmer until it seems to separate from the seeds. Take
from fire and pour through a coarse sieve, rub all that will not
go through of itself with spoon or potato masher. This process
is simply to do away with the seeds. Measure this pulp by cups
and add sugar in equal number of cups. Weigh the skins and
add sugar in equal number of pounds. Mix pulp and skins and
boil about 20 minutes. One will have better results if only

Always save your bread crusts. Dry them thoroughly, put
them through the meat chopper, and sift the crumbs first
through a wire basket, then through a sieve. This will give
you 3 grades. Use the coarsest, moistened with milk, for stuff-
ing fish or poultry; the medium for puddings, etc., and the finest
for rolling croquette mixtures. They will keep a long time.
Do not try to use in this way dry biscuit or buttered toast.

PUNCH, ETC. 135
Four cups of granulated sugar, iy 2 cups of cold water, J /4
teaspoon of cream of tartar, or 3 drops of acetic acid. Stir the
sugar and water in a saucepan, set on the back part of the
range, until the sugar is melted, then draw the saucepan to a
hotter part of the range, and stir until the boiling point is
reached; add the cream of tartar or acid and, with the hand
or a cloth wet repeatedly in cold water, wash down the sides
of the saucepan, to remove any grains of sugar that have been
thrown there. Cover the saucepan and let boil rapidly 3 or
4 minutes. Remove the cover, set in the thermometer if one
is to be used and let cook very rapidly to 240 degrees F., or
the soft ball degree. Wet the hand in cold water and with it
dampen a marble slab or a large platter, then without jarring
the syrup turn it onto the marble or platter. Do not scrape
out the saucepan or allow the last of the syrup to drip from it,
as sugary portions will spoil the fondant by making it grainy.
When the syrup is cold, with a metal scraper or a wooden
spatula, turn the edges of the mass towards the center, and
continue turning the edges in until the mass begins to thicken
and grow white, then work it up into a ball, scraping all the
sugar from the marble onto the mass; knead slightly, then cover
closely with a heavy piece of cotton cloth wrung out of cold
water. Let the sugar stand for an hour or longer to ripen,
then remove the damp cloth and cut the mass into pieces; press
these closely into a kitchen bowl, cover with a cloth wrung out
of water (this cloth must not touch the fondant) and then with
heavy paper. The fondant may be used the next day, but is in
better condition after several days, and may be kept almost in-
definitely, if the cloth covering be wrung out of cold water and
replaced once in five or six days. Fondant may be used, white
or delicately colored with vegetable color-pastes or with choco-
late, as frosting for small cakes, or eclairs or for making candy
"centers," to be coated with chocolate or with some of the same
fondant tinted and flavored appropriately. W. B.
Two cups granulated sugar, 1% cups Karo, 2 cups cream, 1

the rest of the cream, but do not allow boiling to cease. Test
for a firm ball in cold water. Add vanilla and nut meats. Turn
into buttered tin. When nearly cold, cut in cubes and wrap in
waxed paper. The boiling sometimes requires nearly an hour,
but when carefully made these caramels cannot be excelled.
Two cups white sugar, 1 cup brown sugar, % cup corn
syrup, V-2 cup boiling water, % cup walnuts, Vz teaspoon vanilla,
pinch of salt. Cook until brittle, then pour half of it over the
well beaten whites of 3 eggs. Cook the rest of the syrup 5 or
6 minutes longer and add the nuts just before pouring out into
a platter. Don't stir while cooking.

cup cold water. Put on the stove and heat slowly, stirring
occasionally until the liquid becomes clear. Remove any grains
of sugar from the sides of the pan or the spoon. Then let it
come to a boil and do not stir after it begins to boil. When
nearly done put in a piece of butter the size of a walnut. Test
by dropping into cold water and when hard enough to pull (not
brittle), pour out in a buttered platter. Use no spoon and do
not let the last of the syrup drip from it as any sugary por-
tions may cause the whole to become grainy. Pour over this a
teaspoon of vanilla and sprinkle with a little baking powder.
When sufficiently cool, pull until very white; place on bread
board and cut into small pieces. S. I).
One cup white sugar, 1 cup brown sugar, 1 tablespoon

cose over the fire; stir till the sugar is dissolved; wash down the
sides of the saucepan with a cloth or the fingers dipped in cold
water, cover and let boil 3 or 4 minutes, then uncover and let
cook to 275 degrees F., (when a little is cooled and chewed it
clings but does not stick to the teeth), add the butter and pea-
nuts and stir constantly until the peanuts are nicely browned
(or are of the color of well roasted peanuts). Dissolve the soda
in the cold water, add the vanilla and the soda and stir vigor-
ously. When the candy is through foaming, turn it onto a warm
and well-oiled marble or platter. As soon as it has cooled a
little on the edges, take hold of it at the edge and pull out as
thin as possible. Loosen it from the receptacle at the center by
running a spatula under it, then turn the whole sheet upside
down, and again pull as thin as possible.

the saucepan, cover and let boil 3 or 4 minutes, then remove the
cover and let cook without stirring to the hard ball degree; add
the molasses and butter and stir constantly until brittle in cold
water; remove from the fire and, as soon as the bubbling ceases,
add the chocolate, melted over hot water, and the vanilla; stir,
to mix the chocolate evenly through the candy, then pour onto
the popped corn, mixing the two together meanwhile. With
buttered hands lightly roll the mixture into small balls. Press
the mixture together only just enough to hold it in shape. Dis-
card all the hard kernels *n the corn. Have the corn warm
and in a warm bowl.
Shell and blanch the almonds by pouring boiling water over

TWENTY USES OF THE LEMON.
Few people realize the value of lemons, which can not be
overestimated. In cases of fever, sore throat or torpid liver the
medicinal qualities are unexcelled.
1. Two or three slices of lemon in a cup of hot, strong
tea will cure a nervous headache.
2. A teaspoon of lemon juice in a cup of black coffee will
relieve a billious headache.
3. The juice of half a lemon in a cup of hot water on
awakening in the morning is an excellent liver corrective and
successful substitute for calomel and other alterative drugs.
4. A dash of lemon juice in plain water makes a cleansing
tooth wash, not only removing the tartar, but sweetening the
5. A lotion of lemon juice and rose water will remove tan
and whiten the skin.
G. Lemon juice with olive oil is far superior to vinegar
for salad dressing equal parts used for blending.
7. Lemon juice and loaf sugar is good for hoarseness.
8. Outward applications of the juice allays irritation caused
by insect bites.
9. A refreshing drink is made by adding a freshly beaten
egg to lemonade, and
10. The same mixture when frozen makes a delicious ice.
11. If when boiling sago or rice a teaspoon of lemon juice
is added the kernels will be whiter and a delicate flavor is
12. An old fashioned remedy for croup is lemon juice,
honey and alum.
13. We all know the value of lemon juice and salt for
removing rust stains from white goods.
14. After the juice is extracted the rind dipped in salt
cleanses brass beautifully and conveniently.
15. It also removes unsightly stains from the hands.
16. For flavoring cookery lemon juice is unexcelled.
17. After the pulp is removed the skins make dainty recep-
tacles for serving salads, ices, etc.
18. Tough meat can be made tender by adding a teaspoon
of lemon juice to the water in which it is boiled.
19. Slices of lemon garnish fish of all description.
20. Tea is greatly improved by the addition of a slice of
lemon, either iced for summer's use or as Russian tea on a cold
In buying lemons select those having a thin, dry rind. They
are cheaper and are much jucier than the fresh, plump ones.

TO SHARPEN SCISSORS.
Cut them rapidly on the neck of a small glass bottle, or on
a ground glass stopper. It trues the edges and makes them cut
like new. Another way is to place the scissors upon an ordinary
knife as if in the act of cutting. By drawing the steel along
the blades in this manner several times you will sharpen your
WHEN THE LAYERS SLIDE.
Almost everyone has the experience, when filling and icing
a layer cake, of the layers slipping and sliding, thereby causing
an unattractive-looking cake when dry. If you will stick two
or even three of the skewers used by butchers down through
the layers they will hold the cake beautifully in place until set.
REMOVING FRUIT STAINS
from table linen may be much more easily done if the
stained part is stretched tight in an embroidery frame placed
over a basin and boiling water poured upon it. Taking out
fruit stains with boiling water is an old and valuable piece of
knowledge, but the use of an embroidery frame to support the
article probably will be a new suggestion to most housekeepers.
WASHING WHITE SILK GLOVES.
At night is recommended as a means of keeping them from
turning yellow. White silk stockings also should be treated in
the same way. Wash both in warm not hot suds, using a
good soap. Rinse well and hang on a rack to dry. By morning
they will be ready to use.
When using bottled blueing, the common tendency to pour
in too much can be overcome by tying about four thicknesses of
old muslin over the neck of the bottle. This causes the blueing
to filter, so that you can put in just the right amount.
ODORLESS GASOLENE CLEANING.
When washing articles in gasolene pour in a few drops of
oil of sassafras, about five drops to a quart of gasolene. This
will destroy all odor, and the garment washed can be pressed
and worn as soon as the gasolene evaporates, thus eliminating
the lengthy airing process.
